About Me

I've lived most of my life on East Coast of the USA, with the last 10 years in New York City's East Village. I spend much of my time (but not enough of it!) traveling the world. To date I've been to 100+ countries and hope to continue to have new experiences.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to travel! And the best way to authentically experience new places is with new people. I'd love to also share my home with travelers to NYC.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Grateful Dead, Radiohead, and I listen to local music via Spotify when traveling new places. Currently obsessed with Tinariwen.
Books: mostly non-fiction (history, technology)
